Movie Wizard Who Inspired Steven Spielberg & George Lucas, Dies At 92
Who can forget a dinosaur thawed out by A-bomb testing in the Arctic who goes on a Big Apple rampage in which it devours a NYC cop before meeting its demise at Coney Island?
In "Jason and the Argonauts" (1963), the mythic hero Jason, played by Todd Armstrong, slays a seven-headed hyrdra guarding the Golden Fleece, then Jason and two of his men battle seven sword-wielding warrior skeletons which spring from the hydra's scattered teeth.
George Lucas "Star Wars II --Attack of the Clones" featured a gladiator scene exactly like the ones created for Harryhausen's 1958 classic, "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad."
He was survived by his wife, Diana of 50 years and a daughter Vanessa.
